Additional information:
The US Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) reports the following Dietary Supplements are subject to this recall:

  • Super Herbs Dietary Supplements, marketed as a weight loss dietary supplement and packaged in clear bottles with light green and dark green capsules. No UPC or DIN has been identified with this product recall.

Please consult the photograph above for details of the food’s packaging, design and retail presentation.

According to the FDA, Sibutramine is an appetite suppressant that was withdrawn from the US market in October 2010. Desmethylsibutramine is an active metabolite of Sibutramine.

Sibutramine and its active metabolites substantially increase blood pressure and/or pulse rate in some people and may present a significant risk for patients with a history of Coronary Artery Disease, Congestive Heart Failure, Arrhythmias or Stroke.

Phenolpthalein was previously used in over-the-counter laxatives, but because of concerns of carcinogenicity (i.e., its potential to cause Cancer), it is no longer marketed in the US.

These three (3) undeclared ingredients make the recalled Dietary Supplement an unapproved new drug for which safety and efficacy have not been established.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Dietary Supplements, please do not consume them. Instead, kindly return the product to the store or online outlet where you purchased it for a full refund.

If you have any questions about this recall, please contact the company at 1-(305) 204-7668, from Monday to Friday or by e-mail at
